Low Calorie Chicken Salad Sandwich Lettuce Wrap with Lemon Poppy Seed Dressing

Sharing is caring!

Chicken Salad Lettuce Wrap is perfect as the weather is warming which means summer is right around the corner, which means it’s the perfect time for healthy eating.  I love chicken salad sandwiches but made the original way they are loaded with fat and calories.  Here’s one of my favorite substitutes, Low Carb Chicken Salad Sandwich Lettuce Wraps with Lemon Poppy Seed Dressing that’s made with Greek Yogurt.

Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps

Greek Yogurt is a great substitution for mayonnaise and a great way to lower your fat and calories. If you still love your mayo and are worried about ditching it you can always do 1/2 mayo and 1/2 yogurt or 2/3 and 1/3… but I love it with all yogurt.

Chicken Salad Lettuce Wrap with Greek Yogurt:

Recipe Ingredients

  • boneless, skinless chicken breast cooked (I usually boil the frozen chicken breast for about 30 minutes) You could shred up a rotisserie chicken too. If you have a pressure cooker I love making them with THIS recipe
  • Greek yogurt
  • 1-2 stocks of celery
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1-3 tsp of Knorr Caldo de Pollo (chicken seasoning) – start with 1 tsp and taste

How to Make Low Carb Chicken Salad

Cut your cooked chicken into bite-sized cubes. If you prefer your chicken salad shredded, you can shred the cooked chicken with two forks or put it into your standing mixer on low.

Then cut the celery stalk into small chunks.

Then stir together all ingredients in a large bowl. I start with the low amount for the Greek Yogurt and seasoning and add more until you get the texture and taste you desire.

Lemon Poppy Seed Dressing

Ingredients

  • oil
  • Splenda
  • vinegar
  • lemon juice

Instructions

I combine all the ingredients in a small mason jar and then just shake it up.

Which Lettuce is best for wraps?

For my chicken salad lettuce wraps, I’ve been able to find baby romaine lettuce that works perfectly for making these little lettuce wraps. I love the size of the leaves and the flavor of the romaine with the chicken.

Fill the romaine lettuce leaves with some chicken salad and then drizzle on some of the Lemon Poppy Seed Dressing. The sauce makes this chicken salad in my opinion! You could also use butter lettuce or even iceberg lettuce for these wraps.
